0 90

US Department of Defense has decided not to hold accountable any US troops or officials that carried out a drone attack on a house in Kabul killing ten civilians.

A high-level internal review that was published last month was approved by US secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin on Monday, December 13.

The review had concluded that no official or US troop will be punished for the Kabul drone attack since no law has been broken, and there was no evidence of misconduct and negligence.

The drone attack was conducted close to Kabul International Airport on a civilian house during the last days of US withdrawal from Afghanistan as the house was suspected to be a hideout of ISIS-K fighters.

Ten people including seven children and a woman were killed.

US CENTCOM General Kenneth Frank McKenzie had described the attack as a tragic mistake.

The US government had also pledged remittance to the family and US visas if the relative would have liked to settle in the US.
